Geesh, x-400 takes 3 times longer to fix all the bugs to get it flyable compared to building 450xl T-rex kit was a breeze. From missing parts to CNC tail and ccpm upgrade problems this was a pain to build. Heli feels stable but controls on ccpm feels slugglish compared to 450xl heli.

You'll love the 450xl, smooth and very responsive like a sports car. X-400 feels like a station wagon.

I'm with crusader. What bugs?

I had no problems with my kit. Bought it about 3 months ago. It performed as advertised. I spent a lot of time on the tail, making sure it didn't bind -- and it did fresh out of the box, but that's to be expected with cast plastic parts... just scrape and sand off all the flashing.

ARK was just getting into this market. From stories a year ago, their QA seems to have really improved. Still a ways to go-- I still read stories of missing parts in both kits and upgrade packages. But resellers go out of their way to make these issue right.
